    Her hide is in the low 90s right now and has been for a few weeks-- I've got a new heat mat (and a new enclosure!) with the same thermostat as the last time. It's that temperature all day and all...

    It seems like her snout and jaw are bent downward somewhat. What supplements are you using on the crickets that she does eat? I wonder if it is a bit of MBD that's caused some deformities that keep...

    Looks kind of like a blazing blizzard-- maybe a tremper blazing blizzard? Her yellow is definitely much more striking and spotted than the images I'm finding though, but it's my best bet. Regardless...

    Thanks for chiming in, I really appreciate it! Right now her warm hide is 89.0, not sure why the jump in temperature when I've not moved anything around in there since, but that means it's back to...

    Ah I think I wasn't as clear as I thought in my original post-- I'm talking about disinfecting things, not about trying to treat an animal with it!

    What would really help is a video of Scooby walking, and a picture of the leg if possible. I'm sure more experienced members will chime in soon, these are the things I know will help them out when...

    I tried finding some information about this but I can't seem to find a solid answer. The UTH that came with Astara's enclosure is clearly too small (it covers maybe 1/5th to 1/4th of the tank) and I...
